Traffic deaths hit historic low

Traffic fatalities in the city hit a century low last year, yet senior citizens remained some of the most vulnerable pedestrians, according to the latest statistics released Tuesday.

 

Last year, 271 people were killed in traffic crashes, a 29 percent drop since 2000, and the lowest number of fatalities since the city Department of Transportation began tracking accidents in 1910, officials said. While pedestrians accounted for half of the traffic deaths last year, those fatalities have also seen a decline, some 27 percent since 2000.
